Alex sprints (and jumps!) to County Champion medal

Our congratulations go to Alex (Year 5), who competed in the Keith Ward Athletics Competition yesterday in Kings Lynn. In the long jump he achieved 3m 49, smashing his personal best of 2m and winning a trophy for coming in second place and a medal for being County Champion.

Alex also went on to run the 60m sprint in 9.5 seconds, again taking the second-place trophy and County Champion medal.

At only nine years old, Alex has been selected for the U11 Norfolk Athletics Squad and is proud to be representing Norfolk at the regional finals in Hatfield on Sunday 12th Feb.
Well done, Alex – and thank you to Alex’s mother for sending us this happy picture!

Shakespeares-Greatest-Bits

The Bard of Avon is believed to have died 400 years ago on his birthday, April 23, in his native Stratford-upon-Avon – and this landmark anniversary is being celebrated everywhere.  Not least in Norwich’s own Elizabethan-style Maddermarket Theatre, which is running a “Shakespeare 400 mini-festival” programme.

HOHS Director of Drama Jenny Richards is performing in one of the festival productions – this Sunday, 24th April at 7.30pm. She will be taking the roles of Lady McDuff from Macbeth and Maria from Twelfth Night in this romp through the best sonnets and speeches from the world’s greatest wordsmith.
